Ha -- at least my wild goose chase had a much smaller distance to cover, and much of it by phone.

After I got it all straightened out again, I got an email Friday from our NCOIC with the subject line "MEDPROS." I'm like, great, now what??? DNA again? Nope, he just wanted to remind me that I'm 90 days out from needing my annual dental exam. :D

BOHICA - Bend Over, Here It Comes Again!

Trust me, you don't need to define BOHICA for me (unfortunately)!

Happy to say I passed my PT test yesterday. Improved my push-ups and sit-ups (sit-ups have always been my nemesis, so I was soooo happy about this!), but my run was U-G-L-Y!!! My lungs are clearly not 100% yet after my two-month coughing spree. I seriously thought I might have a syncopal episode while running, I was so dizzy and my pace was bad, I just couldn't get my breathing right. Bleh. I thought I might end up in my own ER on my day off! :D I made it and passed, but that was one of the worst runs I've done. I actually for-real vomited when I finished, haha. Oh well ... the next one will be better!

Thank you for your service. Stick with it. There are funny days, frustrating days and rewarding days. I spent almost 30 years in the Army Nurse Corps and I don't regret it al all. I enjoyed the work challenges, the travel and the friends I made. Retirement is great too.

Sounds like a typical ARMY day. I am surprised they got it right at all. Well congrats!

I hate the run also. I got this nifty Nike GPS watch and I was running like up to 5 miles feeling great. Can't wait to PCS to somewhere where it's not crap weather....

Took another PT test in October -- run wasn't much better! LOL. Still gotta work harder on it. I mean, I pass everything, but there is always room for improvement!
